board that keeps blowing down and they keep picking it up in the wind and one teacher. to me, the courage and hope that resonates when i see those kids - some of these young woman, walk 1/2 hours to get to school. it's time we need to help support them and that they have the opportunity and privilege to all go to school. so, i'm - sometimes people ask ar organization and the board mass upon derd this to say half of our staff is illiterate. why do you hire illiterate people to work with literacy organization. these men and women worked for a long time for us and they're willing to go in some of the most difficult, remote or dangerous areas to risk their
7:37 pm
lives year after year just to get one girl in school and i call this is the most over achieving under qualified staff on the planet. you know, some people ask me, well isn't it difficult or dangerous over there? what's the most difficult part about my job. the most difficult part of my job is i'm an indiana jones but i'm not, i'm a father, i'm a husband, and i'm a son - i'm just like all of you. i struggle sometimes in daily life but i'm passionate about education and i know i couldn't do this without the great love of my wife and two children who put up with me being gone. we've been married 12 months -
7:38 pm
no. 12 years. she usually doesn't come. i've been gone about 65 months of my marriage and i didn't get to see my kids first learn how to tie they're shoes or my daughter first learn how to ride a bicycle. i did get to see, kiter learn that. i have that incredible support not only from that but wonderful communities. we could never thank all the communities for helping with the children overseas that are able to reach they're goals through - my wife said i'll preach now. so, any way, thank you. keep on-going here. [applause] and i wake up a lot
7:39 pm
of nights and my wife says go to sleep but i can't because you see a village and then it turned into this big city in mexico and then you do more and it turns into china and you wonder where we're all headed. i don't know the answer but when you know thing i do know fiduciaries you listen to what the people want most of all, it's education for all they're children and i ask many women now when i'm over sees, i ask the women i'm here is a your servant and would like to help you what do you want? most women would say i want a good husband or to become wealthy or prosperity. what most women say is, we don't want our babys to diet. how do you answer that question? it comes through educating girls and through female literacy.
7:40 pm
>> thanks, doug. this is different schools. my daughter occasionally, she looks at these photos and said, dad you don't have any playgrounds in your school so now we have playgrounds and skipping ropes and it's been a really great blessing to see. play is an important part of the learning process and socializing so thank you, amira. this is in la lander school, the story is in karen chronicled it in a tab you have there.
7:41 pm

7:42 pm
down the school from the mulla in the village. they went to his house and arrested him and they're a waiting trial in kabul and will probably get 6 - 8 years. two days later think did open up the school and even had another inauguration for the school because they said we want our kids to go to school. there are about 18 schools - she's got the facts. there's 18 girls that are not going to school and we set up what's called displaced girls school but the rest of the kid have come back here and i think if if quest we can give those k the support they need for education i think things could really make a difference. this is another school. this is in a remote area of north afghanistan.
7:43 pm
the first day of school there was registration day and the kids came to register for school and noticed as i walked i looked down at their chinese rubber boots and flip flops and i kept looking at the ground seeing those little impressions of their prints and i thought back to 1969 when neil armstrong stepped on the moon and said one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind. one tiefu tiny little print for girl walking in the dirt but years later, dozens of other girls will be behind her and eventually hundreds and it will be one giant leap for they're community. it really was the peaks that first brought me there but the people that bring me back again.
7:44 pm
when i got to corefa in the spring. kanle was very sad. his wife passed away. first we embrace each other and there's dust flying around and tiers in our ayes and then we go over to the local graveyard. as we walked to the graveyard we saw her buried in the box in the ground facing the sunset. and out of sentiment he said without her, i'm nothing and then he said something that i would never forget. he said very soon you're going to be standing here and i'm going to be in the ground. and he kind of chuckled and i didn't think that was very funny because i lost my father in his 40's from cancer in 1981 and my sister and you know all of us have lost somebody close to us
7:45 pm
and you never get over that loss. and when we're looking down at the ground, he said when that moment happens, did i say that already? soon i'll be in the ground and he chuckled and he said when that moment happens and you come to see me the ground you'll be very sad but i want you to do one thing, listen to the wind. and i got back in october of 2001ened i was in pakistan around that very hard period called 911. after that the united states state department and embassy wanted to evacuate all united states citizens out of pakistan saying it's dangerous here but i had a lot of work to get done so. i called my wife and asked her what should i do and she said stay there with the people
7:46 pm
you love. finish up your work because you need to be over there right now. and when i was in pakistan after 911, everywhere i went i was touched by outpouring of empathy and hospitality. i remember a poor elderly widow that brought me five precious eggs and pushed them in my palm and said bring these back to the widows in new york suffering. this is all i have to share with them. i was invited for prayers of piecen the mosque and every whether i went people apologized even though they didn't have anything to do with it. finally it came time and i went back and when i got to corefa, hangele had passed away. i went to his grave and stood there look at his box in the ground and thought, how can i go on, this man had become my
7:47 pm
father, mentor and guide. he told me to sit down and be quiet and take a bath and so many things. and then i remembered what he said. he said to listen to the wind. and i listened to the wind and in the wind i heard the voices of the children in the school and i remembered and realized his legacy and vision for education came true. and i also realized after a decade i had finally come full circle and i hadn't found the field of dreams in a corn field in iowa and i hadn't found the field of dreams at the top of,k 2 but i found the field of dreams in a place in a dusty field in a place called corefa in pakistan. amir you want to come up here. >> ♪ i see young boy.

7:50 pm
shelter. and come in and a lot of people come here to adopt a animal or if they have lost their animal or looking for other animals. and we deal with other animals like birds and rabbits and you name it. this is more to see in this facility and more to see in the community. and i suggest you go with an animal control person and see what they co, whether rescuing animals in distress or hit by a car or dealing with aggressive animals or wildlife or a variety of things. you can only get that flavor with them and doing it first hand. >> i have been with animal control for about six years, i spent a year in the kennel and
7:51 pm
then the office came up and i started doing it and it really fit. it's really the job for me. and animals i have to handle and i know what i am doing, i rarely get scared. [whistle]. we do a lot of investigations and most are not as bad as people report but everyone once in a while they are. and i had one and people had moved out and the dog was in the inside and it makes me teary and when the dog is in the backyard, and i can pull an animal out of a horrible environment and feel good. >> where does this animal go after this?
7:52 pm
>> they go for the shots and then the kennel. >> and if they just found this, and once we enter everything in the computer and they can track to find out if the dog went back home. we hold them for five days. >> this is a stray dog and it came in today and we immobilize it and then put it in a room with food and water. >> and then evaluate for medical behavior and see if anyone is interested in adopting then. >> we want to be sure that their behavior is good for the average adopter and not aggression problem, toward people or animals. >> and if they growl and don't
7:53 pm
bite the hand, she passes that. and good girl, in case she has something in her mouth, we get it out. and one more test, called the startle test and it startled hear but she came to me. and passed the handling test. >> for the mental exam i feel for lumps and bumps. and the ears and see if they are infected and look at the eyes and be sure they are clear and don't have cataracts and look at their teeth and heart. this is the first job that i feel i make a dvrngs. -- difference. and we may do 40 to 80 animals
7:54 pm
a day for treatments. and do blood work and skin scrapings and cultures to diagnose different diseases. and x-rays, i can take an animal that would be euthanized at a different shelter and fix it and get it ready for a home. >> we have a partnership and we let a professional groomer run a private business from our facility and in turn grooms our shelter animals. what is the big deal of that? when someone comes to adopt an animal, if it looks good, chances are it will be adopted more. >> and we groom and clean the ears and the works. >> typically a shelter wouldn't
7:55 pm
have grooming? >> not at all. and these dogs are treated with the utmot -- utmost care that others can't provide. this is a shampoo to bring out the luster. and i feel satisfied in helping the shelter pets be adopted and to be a part of such a wonderful staff, from the top all the way down. if she passes our evaluation, she will stay until she's adopted. if you are interested in adoption and don't want to put them to sleep, that means at a last resort, we will give you a call before putting to sleep. you are not bound to the dog, and we would give you a call, and it's an actual adoption and cost $107 and it will be your
7:56 pm
dog. >> the volunteers to meet are the unsung heroes in this field that take the animals to hope and nurse them to get strong enough to come down and rehome. without volunteers, i would have to be honest to say this wouldn't be much more than a pound. we thank god that we have the number of committed people coming down and helping us out, it makes all the difference in the world. >> when you want to come in and volunteer, you go through a general orientation, about two hours. there is a lot of flexibility. and the various programs available, are baseline dog walking. you can work with the cats. you can work with tony's kitty rescue, with the small animals
7:57 pm
and guinea pigs and birds and chickens. >> you always have an appreciative audience. >> do you feel that what you have learned here helped you with your own dogs? >> the training they don't have? yes. and it's things that you learn, we usually outlive our dogs and every time you get a new one, you have skills to teach them. >> one of the programs is training program and it's staffed by a member of the community and one of the programs she has is dog socialization. >> we started this program for canine socialization. and all the dogs available for adoption get to play for two
7:58 pm
hours. and it's a time for them to get incredible exercise and play with other dogs and we have remedial socialization. and it's incredible the dogs and they get exercise and run and tumble and when most adopters come to look in the afternoon, they are quiet and settled. >> and i want come and someone sees a dog and loves it, it's quick. and after three weekends, i saw him and he connected and i connected and came back. >> what is your experience of working with the animals? >> unbelievable. from the guy that is came to the house and everyone here, they are friendly and knowledge

hello, i'm ivette torres and welcome to another edition of the road to recovery. today we'll be talking about treating addiction among our nation's youth. joining us in our panel today are frances harding, director, center for substance abuse prevention, substance abuse and mental health services administration, u.s. department of health and human services, rockville, maryland; monique bourgeois, executive director, association of recovery schools, fort washington, pennsylvania;
8:01 pm
greg williams, co-director, connecticut turning to youth and families, danbury, connecticut; dr. mark godley, director, research and development, chestnut health systems, bloomington, illinois. fran, what is the extent of the problem with youth in america? our most recent survey from samhsa is that around 10 million, a little over 10 million of our young people, are using alcohol and substances. that actually breaks down to 26 percent of them are drinking and another 17 percent of them are binge drinking, which is having more than five drinks in a row at one setting. so it's a concern of ours that our young people are really starting to accelerate drinking and drugging than they have in the past.
